Eddie Royal injury update: Fantasy owners should get points in shootout

Tommy Gilligan-USA TODAY Sports

Eddie Royal is fine and will suit up in a big game against the Broncos. We break down the fantasy implications.

San Diego Chargers wide receiver Eddie Royal is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Denver Broncos. He didn't participate in any practice this week and will likely be a game-time decision.

This is nothing new for Royal and it's the third week in which he's had a questionable tag. But chances are that he will suit up and play. In those aforementioned two weeks he scored in once in both games with four catches and at least 55 yards.

Royal hasn't been a big option in the passing game with just 26 receptions on the year, but he's amazingly scored seven times on the season. Although, most of that production came in the first two weeks, with five scores in those games.

Fantasy impact: Keenan Allen has emerged as the go-to guy and Danny Woodhead also gets his fair share of targets. Royal only had 10 targets combined in his last two games, so he's not quite as reliable as his TD total suggests. Unless you're desperate, he should be on the bench.
